can save 134,000 cancer diagnoses each year, Cancer Research UK is
About 40% of cancers in women and 45% of men could be prevented through a healthy lifestyle, including drinking less, smoking less and lose weight, according to the most comprehensive study risk factors to date.
Cancer Research UK, which funded the work, said that about 134,000 people could avoid a cancer diagnosis if they have more care of themselves.
Although the major risk factor by far is smoking, which caused 23% of cancers in men and 15.6% in women, there were also some surprises. Putting too much weight, for example, was found an increased risk of breast cancer in women that alcohol consumption and diet were 9.2% of all cancers, if the lack of fruits and vegetables, excessive salt and red meat and too little fiber all included.Obesity and overweight
were a cause of 5.5% of cancers in general - but rose to 6.9% (10,800 cases of cancer) in women compared to 4.1% in men (6500 cases). The reason for this difference is mainly breast cancer -. In breast cancer after menopause, overweight is a factor in 80% of cases
alcohol was involved in 4% of cancers in general (4.6% in men and 3.3% among women). Too much sun and using tanning beds caused 3.5% of cancers.
Men had a higher risk of cancer as a result of not eating five daily servings of fruits and vegetables, in men it was a risk factor for 6.1% of cancers where women are reduced to 3.4%.Other risk factors examined in the study were infections such as human papillomavirus (HPV) that cause cervical cancer, occupations such as working with asbestos, lack of exercise, radiation, lack of breastfeeding and the use of hormone replacement therapy (HRT).
, CEO of Macmillan Cancer Support, said the healthy lifestyle messages did not come. "Nobody chooses to have cancer and it would be wrong to blame the wrong people to make decisions in lifestyle," he said.
"For too long, people have said that eating healthily, not smoking and regular exercise can benefit, and these figures show once again the impact of a healthy lifestyle can have. However, these messages are clearly healthy living do not come too many people. should also be easier to identify with people everyday.
